    Roaring Creek? Mt Top? Wouldn't mind a Snappers ride if anyone from Mt Top is planning to do it.

    I can bring the anti-freeze. I'll ride pretty much anywhere, but since I'm on the Niner until further notice nothing with drops (larger than last week's...) is in my future. I really don't want to failure-test my fork. Currently I'm open both days, hopefully not subject to change. Once day of Serious Riding (e.g. 20+ miles) would be fabulous in my book.

    It's a legendary ride in Mt Top that I've been hearing about for 10 years, but never ridden. I think you may need to learn the Mt Top secret handshake to ride it. Jeffskismontana will have to enlighten us.

    I've ridden Snappers a few times, if Jeff can't make it maybe my GPS and memory can lead us the merry ride.

    Saturday is best for me, now, when do people want to start?

    We could meet in the parking lot of the Rite Aid at the intersection of Kirby and 309, and then roll caravan to the parking area.

    I'll meet any time after 7am, 8 is fine. Plan on it being "chilly."

    We could also do the MTop ride Sun if Nanker would like to participate, I can change my schedule thus. Up to you guys though as you're the ones who are travelling.

    I just need to know by sometime this early-evening so I can plan accordingly with the Mrs.

    I live in Kingston , JeffSkisMontana is in Mountain Top, Nanker and Jonz are in Danville vicinity.

    For the ride I'm talking about the trails start near the hookup location I posted, but I can't be more specific here. Hook up for a ride and find out more.

    I also live in mountain top but I'm a mtb'ing noob. I've been riding road for the past 3 years and recently got a mountain bike. I would love to ride with you guys but wouldn't want to slow you down.

    Jay, as far as I am concerned you are welcome to come - when I want to do a hammerfest-ride I will be explicit about that.

    In tomorrow's case you just need to understand that the intended ride is on the order of 12 to 15 miles long, mixed double and single-track. There will be stops and photos I am sure - not every other mile but enough. I have no time limit.

    I am interested to hear from Jonz and Nanker, if it would work better Sun.

    Would moving the ride to Sun AM affect anybody else?

    Both days work equally well for me, just waiting to hear what's up with Nanker. Jay, feel free to join us.

    I'm not able to do a 2 and a half hour drive for a ride this weekend, but would be game in the future. I'm down near Gettysburg, if you guys ever wanna hit up some of the areas down here as well.

    jmadams you're an hour forty five from Rattling Creek. Could be a cool place for a bunch of us to meet up some weekend.

    Bear, just let me know, some nice trails close to me, and even better a hour or so into MD towards fredrick or Howard county.

    Nanker, more like 2 with traffic, but yeah, been planning on a trip there for early spring. Been a while since I've ridden there. I'm originally from Carroll County, so it was a hike, but much more.

    I think the thing that scares me in this conversation is that I'm also originally from Carroll County, left in '83, but my Mom still lives in the same house ( near the intersection of Rt 32 and Klees Mill Rd ).

    But yeah, definitely come down that way sometime(s) this year. I keep hear/reading about stuff down that way so must try it out.
